What To Buy For A First Year Anniversary Gift
If you are going to celebrate your first anniversary, knowing what to buy for a first year anniversary gift is necessary. Depending on your loved one's taste and preference, the anniversary gift can be traditional, modern, or just a gift card. These tips will guide you on buying your first year anniversary gift.
- Gift made of paper material. If your loved one is a traditional person, a paper gift would float his or her boat. Make this gift on your own if you are a creative person. Consider any of these homemade gifts: A photo album, a scrapbook, a pencil portrait, a story book, a one-page handwritten love poem, etc. The other option is to shop for this gift. Since paper is a very customizable material, this makes your gift selection very easy and affordable. Examples: A book of love coupons, a personalized magazine cover, a keepsake box, a photo mosaic, etc.
- Jewelry as the gift. If your darling loves anything modern, get him or her a piece of jewelry. Although jewelry isn’t as customizable as paper, you still can express yourself on it. You can make this gift very extraordinary and meaningful with the following gift ideas: A heart shaped locket necklace, a sterling silver couples name engraved band, a pair of sparkling crystal heart earrings, an engraved stainless steel bracelet watch, a platinum plated anniversary date bracelet, etc. If you consider the gift with picture, pick your darling's favorite picture with both of you in it. For the engraved gift, the texts can be: the time, date and place that you guys met, a love poem, or just one sweet line such as: "I love you forever", "Happy 1st anniversary", etc.
- Gift card. If neither traditional nor modern gift idea is an option, consider a gift card. Find out what your darling's favorite store is, and then decide the gift card amount that you want to purchase. Note that sometimes the store only has gift cards in certain amounts available like: $25, $50, $75, etc. Pick a different store if you aren't comfortable with the limitations. Just in case this situation happens, make sure that you get a list of his or her favorite stores as backups.
